    1: RDA vs. Conor - Can Conor pull it of? Can RDA take Conor into deep waters?
    2: Jones vs. DC - What can I say?
    3. Overeem vs. Arlovski - based on rankings and regarding the title picture it doesnt make sense. But both are great fighters, and i love the matchup.
    4. Pettis vs. Barboza
    5. Maia vs. Brown

    1) RDA vs Conor... Ive nearly gnawed my hands off worrying for Conor... Pettis and Cowboy are two of my favorite fighters and RDA mauled them.
    I'm rooting for Conor but I worry RDA is gonna blast that liver with a bodykick and pressure him straight to the fence, then take him down and pound on him till Conor opens up for a submission
    2) Jones vs Cormier... I want to see Jones return with sheer dominance.
    3) Pettis vs Barboza... I want Pettis to get a good win. And the fireworks that Pettis vs Barboza should be will be fun to watch.
    4) Holm vs Meisha... I want to see if Holm looks as dominant
    5) Khabib vs Ferguson... Curious to see how Khabib looks after the long time out, and if Ferguson can look good against Khabib

    Holm vs. Tate. Should be a very interesting style matchup although I expect Holm to win.

    Shogun vs. Rashad. Fight should have happened like five years ago but oh well at least we get to see it at all.

    Anderson vs. Bisping. Definitely needed to happen before either guy retired. Think Bisping has more left in the tank provided Anderson is fighting clean.

    dos Anjos vs. McGregor. I expect dos Anjos to maul McGregor and I hope he does but anything can happen in MMA and we'll see. Definitely a dangerous fight for both guys.

    Pettis vs. Barboza. Should be a hell of a striking fight but then again I thought that about the Alvarez fight too.

    How do you see the fight going then?

    I honestly cannot see how it is going to be exciting.
    Both don't have a chin anymore. Arlovski tends to just stand there, while Reem is turning into a marathon person, averaging 118 laps around the octagon per round.

    Which is just a really sad thing, because I used to enjoy both of them fight.
    How you got?

    I hope we get to see the Arlovski that showed up to fight Browne.
    And the Overeem that fought JDS was great.
    I don't see Arlovski vs Overeem go the distance where both men have the power to KO eachother. (oke, those chins are horrible)
    Them both coming from Jackson-Wink for me is an interesting dimension.
    I think Overeem by TKO in the second or third round.
